No prior surgeries
I posted in this forum about 3 weeks ago. I had ongoing pain
in my left labia, no visible sore, but irritation and discomfort throughout my vaginal area. I was tested twice for herpes (swab tested) and both came back negative. Since that time I've completely stopped shaving per the doctors orders. This past Saturday I gave in and shaved the entire area...I couldn't stand the hair anymore (it was itching
). Previous to my issue I was shaving the entire area regularly and had a bikini wax about 4 weeks prior.
After I shaved on Saturday I noticed a hard bump on my left labia. I totally freaked out. Since then I've been very anxious
and 'feeling' it get more sore. Today I went to the doctor to have it tested...since now there is something in the region. At first glance she said it does not look like a herpes lesion and there seems to be hair in/around the bump. She swabbed tested the area, she dragged the swab over it repeatedly (the bump is long, alittle above the skin, not round) and now it is super sore! I realize I will get my results in 2 days, but I am hoping for some quick advice / help. Any thoughts on what this could be? Does it sound like herpes? I got very worried because I got my period today and I've read people get lesions around their period. Could just be a coincidence. Please help.
